Rupp's 10k is just over 1 second per lap slower than the WR. Just over 4s per mile. His 2:06:07 is just over 7s per mile slower than the WR. The 10k was when Rupp was at his break of running. I don't see him, at his age, getting much closer to the WR. Maybe a 2:05.x, but unlikely to better KK's American Record.


I have no idea how you arrived at Rupp not being able to better 2:05:38 (which is only 29 seconds faster than what he just ran), but I would like to understand better. So you are saying that on a extremely flat Berlin course, with much fewer turns, and much fewer sharp turns, on a day that is 20 degrees colder, that Rupp couldn't run 30 seconds faster?? That's interesting!
If you didn't watch this race, I suggest watching it in length. It should tell you a lot of his potential.
